Second season to bow in October
IFC has decided that airing “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret” was not a bad decision at all.The cabler has renewed the David Cross starrer for a second season of six halfhour episodes, scheduled once again to preem in October. Cross created the series, which stars him as a bumbling, lying American trying to become a success in the U.K. “I am excited to continue the story that was merely hinted at last season — questions will be answered and secrets revealed all while the mystery heads towards a deep, shuddering, and very satisfying climax,” waxed Cross. The series is a co-production between IFC and RDF Television. Shaun Pye and Mark Chappell co-write with Cross. ” ‘Todd Margaret’ personifies the type of offbeat comedy IFC brings to viewers,” IFC senior original programming veep Debbie DeMontreux said. The renewal comes less than two weeks after IFC re-upped “Portlandia,” which launched in January, for a second season of 10 episodes. Zodiak Rights has distribution outside of the U.S. and is launching ‘Todd Margaret’ at MIP next month.
